Young men's attitudes to gender and work

Trefor Lloyd
15th May 1999

This study - the eighth in the Work and Opportunity series - explores young men-s views on and experience of the current employment market, and their attitudes towards 'gendered' work (work perceived as being more suited to one sex or the other).

It looks at whether young men are being prepared for the contemporary workplace, and whether their, or others', gender assumptions are affecting their experience and expectations. In addition, it examines young men's attitudes to school, how well they thought they had been prepared for work, their initial experience of jobs and how this changed their views about employment, and the influence of race and racism.
